DIY wall bed for under $150

DIY wall bed directions & plans here:

DIY wall bed for under $150 (with shelves)- DIY murphy bed. (My dad is showing you how it works… a much requested video!) My dad & my husband built this wall bed and so many of you have been asking for a video of it- so here you go! 🙂 to drop something off, so I asked him to help me fold it up so that I could make this video for you.

See the full post with pictures and more instructions at

This bed costs around $70 to build, plus another $80 for the shelving.

Great idea Looks really good how far from the wall is your 2×6 and how high off the floor I,m trying to build one did you what did you use for the framing of the bed ??? Thank you

There’s no sound. Is it just my computer?

Pam Krusac says:

Beckey   I am going to have a handy man build this for me. you said it was heavy to fold. I am 72 and do not have the strength I used to.
Is there any way to get a list and size of the hardware you are using? Now that you have built one do you have any thought on how to make it easier to fold?  It would really be great to talk to your husband and get first hand.  He could talk to my handy man???  If not thank you for posting this video

Pam ;o)

this is going in my small house (Tiny house)

Propertyexit says:

awesome video. Really love how you guys built it. How heavy is it you think to lift up?

Nathan W says:

Very inexpensive and creative. My only concern would be the pillows slipping off the back of the bed as you sleep. Either some form of headboard or the ability to lift it up and back towards the wall with a slide.. that would be perfect. Thanks for the inspiration.

Owes Ibrahim says:

so much effort every morning rushing to work, nice idea though

Martoes says:

You are amazing. As a student my room doesn’t have alot of space, but if I folded my bed, it would be alot bigger! Now to get it hidden away in the wall is a bit to tryhard for me so I will probably leave the sides and give it a feeling like a four poster bed, or make underneath the bed a wardrobe! THanks for inspiring me, if I ever find the time to make this bed, I will let you know and post a video online. Greetings from a dutch fellah.

Hi Honey says:

Hi, this looks really nice , do you have plans or more video on how to build it? Great idea, I wonder if the little shocks like for automatic door closing would work in this somehow to help the lifting and putting away, also possible reduce the speed of the drop and reduce weight?  Great video. Thanks

Matt J says:

when it is folded up can you see the hinges at the bottom? if not how did you hide them?

why don’t you make that upper door with a floor in it and then you will have a cabinet for storage space.
